Infant & Toddler Care (newborn–23 months)

Our nurturing and professional caregivers cater to the youngest guests of Mammoth Mountain. The ratio of children to staff is 4 to 1. The nursery is equipped with soothing music, swings, age appropriate toys, high chairs, fridge, microwave, bottle warmers, a seating area for breast-feeding mothers and a cozy sleeping area complete with cribs and bedding. For toddlers who are used to actively playing until lunch time and are accustomed to taking one afternoon nap per day, our caring staff is trained to tune into your child's individual needs and help him or her work through any separation anxiety. Our toddler play area is equipped with age appropriate climbers, toys, books, music, sensory and craft tables. Toddlers nap on mats after lunchtime; linens are provided. Please check in by 10am to allow your toddler time to adjust to his or her new environment before lunch and nap time.

What to pack: Pre-mixed bottles, pre-filled sippy cups, food, diapers, wipes, spare set of clothing and comfort items (such as a pacifier or special blanket).

This age group is welcomed by enthusiastic and qualified caregivers who have planned an activity-filled day at Mammoth Child Care. Inside, children will participate in singing and stories, arts and crafts, dress-up play, video games, fun with blocks, games, puzzles, toys and much more. Quiet time is after lunch. The ratio of children to staff is approximately 8 to 1. Please check in by 10am to ensure your child's participation in outside excursions or the gondola ride. Mats with linens are provided. Our caring staff is trained to tune into your child's individual needs and help him or her work through any separation anxiety.

Child Care FAQs

Can my children of different ages be in the same room together? Siblings may be in the same room together as long as both are either under or over the age of 2 years. If one child is under the age of two, and the other is over age 2, we do allow the older sibling to visit the younger sibling for short periods of time as long as it is in the infant room.

Do you welcome children with special needs?
We warmly welcome children with special needs or disabilities as long as we can safely and effectively meet the needs of the child.

What if my child requires special medications? Medication may be administered to your child upon written parental instruction.

What happens to my child in the event of an emergency? If a child has a medical or dental emergency, he/she will be transported to Mammoth Hospital. Every attempt will be made to contact the parent immediately.

Can other people sign my child in/out of child care? Per California Licensing regulations, parents must sign their child in and out to complete transfer of responsibility.

How are misbehaved children disciplined? Positive redirection (or "cool down" as a last resort) is the only form of discipline used at Mammoth Child Care. Any form of discipline or punishment which violates your child's personal space is prohibited.
